Lately I’ve found myself waking at 5am. I’m not just a little bit awake where I can roll over and go back to sleep – I’m wide awake and getting up to do yoga. Yesterday I gave myself a balance. 5-7am relates to the large intestine, common emotions found here are grief, guilt and letting go. The emotion for me was grief. I’ve been aware of the grief, but was not able to release it. The point that tested up was large intestine # 6 Side Passage. This point relates to dryness (I’ve been very thirsty) and feelings of loss and grief. It is also the luo point to the lung meridian and can be seen as “providing an external vent through which lung stagnation whether it be emotional (grief) or physical (phlegm), can exit one’s being”. (Jarrett, The Clinical Practice of Chinese Medicine, p596)
The energenetic symbol that sits at this point is blue/amber, the other side of the coronavirus symbol amber/blue which I’ve written about here. ”With this experience you will be required to master the strength you carry so your authority and authenticity will have to be controlled with balance…The passing of this fear associated with past learnings will close out the shadow that walks with you, and allow new strands of hope and aspiration to rise up within you.”
After two years of living in limbo due to the virus and the restrictions we have been placed under, there is a lot of grief in need of release. Grief for the people we couldn’t visit, for the funerals we couldn’t attend, for the loss of our dreams, our jobs, our inclusion in society. For the people we are unable to talk to because our understanding and experience of this time are so vastly different. Grief for those affected by flood, war and now the constant sound of ambulances as more people succumb to the harm caused by a medical trial.
So, I’m back to placing my attention on The Key of Faith and trusting that “another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing. “(Arundhati Roy). Part of me is already there.
